The 5:2 diet, the weight loss will come won’t it?

Share Button

Mmm, I’m feeling a little despondent today. I have had no further weight loss since my last post. I have been doing the 5:2 for the last couple of weeks, this is week 3 and I have yet to see any results. I thought this was unusual as I had yet to see anyone who

It appears all the years of making excuses, not dieting at the weekend, blaming anything but actual maths of calories in / calories out was really wrong. Who knew 😉 I have been diligently
